Don’t be afraid to ask the Butchers for help! They’re friendly and will be able to give you expert advice on the best cuts and ways to cook meat. Even if you’re an expert, you can learn something from butchers!
Work out which cut and how much meat you’ll need to order for you and your family. You can use our Cuts Guide below to learn more about the cuts, but again ask the butchers for advice! This way you’ll save money and wastage.
Butchers aren’t just about meat. Look out for additional produce they sell, from farmers market vegetables to dairy produce.
